Expression of homocellular and heterocellular gap junctions in hamster arterioles and feed arteries

Sandow, Shaun L; Looft-Wilson, Robin; Doran, Beth; Grayson, Thomas; Segal, Steven S; Hill, Caryl

Description

Objectives: Conduction of vasoconstrictor and vasodilator responses in the microcirculation involves electrical coupling through gap junction channels among cells of the vascular wall. The present study determined whether reported differences in the properties of conduction along the arterioles of the epithelial hamster cheek pouch (CPA) and feed arteries of its retractor skeletal muscle (RFA) result from differences in the expression profile of specific connexin (Cx) isoforms and the gap...[Show more]
